Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

“One of the best crime stories ever written.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
I mean the story is already pretty crazy so this doesn't need much to be relatively interesting. The author gives information from a different perspective. What I found most consuming were his off the record convos with Manson. Hearing his words you could see what a manipulator he was and it was scary. But sometimes it lost me...my attention just waned and I don't know whether it was the narrator or if there was just too much detail. I think if you have interest in this murder or murder mystery type stuff you'll enjoy it overall but I wouldn't say it's amazing... I will listen to it again though
I've already recommended this to a friend who read the book and can't wait to listen to it after I told him how great the audiobook is.
Yes, it's THAT interesting and well written.
The anticipation in the beginning, the author's enormous detail on the events, Manson's life, the family and the trial. Everything you would want to know about the events that took place, is so well researched and written in this book.
His voice and narrative is perfect for this book and this genre.
It made me do both. Something not many books can do.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I don't think I can express how much I enjoyed this book. Top 3 so far.
Always wondered what it was all about. This book delivers a methodical and complete walkthrough of the Manson Family and the Manson trial. The author, Bugliosi, comes off as incredibly thorough and diligent. Manson comes off as a crazy person. Well work the read.
